This looks like a caterpillar of a butterfly in the family Nymphalidae, such as the common buckeye, Junonia coenia - see Junonia coenia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Junonia coenia - Buckeye -- Discover Life

If that is the case, it will not survive, as they do not overwinter in your area.
